Marten explores the interaction of syntax, pragmatics, and semantics
in the behavior of verb phrases and how they interact with the
information provided by the verb. He also considers how the component
elements of linguistic theory explain what appear to be simple
utterances, but whose structure is hard to analyze--how, for example,
"Fran is baking Mary a cake in the oven" is different from "Fran is
baking Mary a cake in the kitchen".
